Holocaust database unites long-lost cousins
Brothers had been separated in World War II
For five long years during World War II, Nahum Korenblum never left the side of his younger brother Yaakov as the two fled the Nazi invasion of Poland, escaped forced labor camps across Europe, and ultimately joined the Soviet Red Army. There, they were separated and dispatched abroad, never to meet again. Yesterday, more than a decade after they died, their children were united at Israel’s Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial thanks to a recently uploaded family photo discovered on its comprehensive online database of Holocaust victims.
